I don’t know what it is about fall, but once it’s here I’m always anxious to start baking! Fall brings so many delightful things, including those delicious pumpkin spice treats! But I always pull out my favorite Fall Cookies Recipes the minute the temperature drops below 70 degrees! (That is actually cool down south!)
These are my favorite Fall Cookie Recipes guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth from the first turning leaf right through Thanksgiving dessert!
Baking Fall Cookies
I love making cookies for my family. The girls get so excited when they come home from school and find fresh treats as a surprise! It is a way to always get the kids to sit down with me around the table after school. Instead of talking about homework and chores, cookies make them giggle and tease each other. They share silly stories and laugh – and argue over how many cookies they should be allowed to eat. Since my 3 daughters are pretty far apart in age, I am always looking for ways to help them bond more closely, even though their interests are so different.
Since my 3 daughters are far apart in age, I am always looking for ways to help them bond more closely, even though their interests are so different. And anyone can bond over cookies!
If I am really honest, if I am missing spending time together in our busy lives, I know baking will bring everyone together for those moments that make my heart feel so full.
My middle daughter also loves to bake. At 6 years old, she is a cookie pro. While my other 2 daughters also enjoy cooking and baking, my middle child will tell me that she can do it and doesn’t need my help. I secretly love that she is so determined to figure things out on her own. She certainly bakes better than I did at six!
